What We Do

GK Ron DeLuca, Sr Jean Liston and Treasurer Chuck Falkevitz making a Special Needs Donation


                                                          What We Do
On the local level
The members of Raymond V. Hennessy Council donate funds and volunteer their time and expertise to many different local charities and organizations. Some of these donations are made public, but many are private donations made to individuals who are injured, sick or in need of immediate assistance that otherwise would not be available were it not for the generosity of our members.


Babe Ruth was a Knight of Columbus

On an international level
Have you and your family ever watched the telecast of The Pope's midnight Mass from St. Peter's Basilica in Rome on Christmas Eve? Well, the Knights of Columbus is the organization that underwrites the costs of beaming that telecast from the Vatican, and has done so since 1976. Our satellite uplink program covers the costs of uploading the transmission and pays for the downlink in mission countries as well.

Or perhaps you've seen us standing in front of your local shopping mall or grocery store raising funds for programs supporting people with SPECIAL NEEDS.

The Knights of Columbus uses its Annual Survey of Fraternal Activity to gather various facts on the work done by local units. Information collected through the survey includes the amount of money and volunteer hours donated by the Knights of Columbus to charitable causes. In 2007, Knights Orderwide raised and distributed $144,911,781 to charitable programs and volunteered 68,695,768 hours of time. There were 393,030 KofC blood donors during the year. Knights made more than 5.5 million visits to the sick.

These totals - the highest in the Order's history to that date - are based on reports received from most Knights of Columbus councils, Fourth Degree assemblies, Columbian Squires circles and other jurisdictional entities responding to the survey. Over the past 10 years, the Knights of Columbus has volunteered more than 612 million hours of service and donated over $1.28 Billion to charity.
